Legal Hold role

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

The Legal Hold management role enables administrators to configure whether data within a mailbox should be retained for litigation purposes in an organization.

Additional scope considerations

In addition to recipient scopes, the Enable-Mailbox cmdlet, which is included with this role, is also scoped using database configuration scopes. Database configuration scopes control which databases the cmdlet can create new mailboxes on. The database where you want to create a mailbox must be within the database scope. This applies both when you specify a database using the Database parameter on the Enable-Mailbox cmdlet, or if you allow automatic mailbox distribution to select the database for you. For more information, see Understanding management role scopes.
